The document describes a methodology and associated computer model, SLDGFILL (sludge-only landfill), for assessing the risk to humans of pathogens in treated municipal sewage sludge landfills. The purpose of the model is to determine the probability of infection of a human receptor from pathogens in a sludge-only landfill, or monofill. The ultimate objective is to assist the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its technical criteria development and regulatory activities, but the immediate uses include (1) using the model as a research and risk assessment tool to illustrate information gaps and research needs and (2) applying the methodology in performing actual pathogen risk assessments.
